E57: Chupacabra

March 25, 2019

The Chupacabra, Spanish for "goat-sucker", is one of the most legendary cryptids in the modern history of the Americas. For half a decade, the creature allegedly terrorized communities throughout South and North America, killing large amounts of goats, chickens, cattle, and other animals. Sporting lizard-like skin, sharp fangs and claws, and alien-like eyes, the chupacabra is said to have a thirst for the blood of livestock and household pets. In this episode, Matt and Kayla cover the history of the chupacabra, breaking down theories about the creature's origin and its sudden disappearance.
